    Blegh. No better way to double down on the stupid name 'First program' by calling us 'Firsties' and making me nauseous

    I really liked Fallout 4.  Idk.  I genuinely think it's the best game Bethesda's ever made, after Morrowind.  Fallout: New Vegas was okay, but with all the farms and government stuff, it didn't feel that much like a wasteland.  Fallout 4 just seemed to do everything so much more subtly, little gameplay details you might not notice, but when you do you're like 'wow!'.  Although I'll admit those might be the kind of details *I* really enjoyed, and I'm looking forward to them implementing in a game with more developed other systems, of the kind other people really enjoy and thought were lacking in F4.  I thought the level of immersiveness was really impressive in F4, and it gave me a lot of faith in whatever games they're going to make in the future.  But to each their own, I guess.


    Destiny has a full-on cycle, and then it goes to sleep for a while.  Like Pennywise.

    Sure the SNES Classic is cool, but I remember a really cool Atari emulator I got as a stocking stuffer and it cost about 15. It was an actual joystick and plugged right in via A/V cables, and had about 20 games on it. That being said, this is a terrible 1st party option for those only interested in 3 or 4 games from the SNES, given it's $80 pricetag. This is DECADES-old tech, and I don't feel they can justify that price. I think it should have been cheaper and allow you to buy additional games to your liking. If you decide to emulate these titles, I wouldn't feel too bad, as Nintendo has officially made it's money from these games. Just IMO.

    Ooo nice, Alfredo's a good addition to Glitch Please!


    EDIT: What Ashley was saying at about 19 minutes in about knowing exactly what you need to do but not being able to do it and hating yourself rathe than the game reminds me of 90s platformers like Crash Bandicoot. Of course, that's probably just because I was watching Jeremy play it yesterday....

    We shouldn't have to wait 10 years for the next Elder Scrolls game so they can keep scraping the bottom of the barrel for those few millions of $'s they still haven't made by porting Skyrim to every platform to ever exist, making "special editions", etc.

      I'm personally really interested to see what the IP they're working on is going to be. If ES6 is being delayed due to them working on something else really cool I can live with it. If we get skyrim but in space, less excited. Paid mods and re-releases annoy me, that being said I'm still buying the hell out of Skyrim on the Switch, so maybe I'm not actually annoyed by it as I think I am.

    That very last question y'all discussed (720p/60fps vs 1080p/30fps) was pretty interesting in how it revealed how each of you approach gaming. I'd be interested to hear Gus and Adam and anyone else's preference on that. For me it's generally fps over resolution, but I can definitely see Ashly's reasoning for slower games; that was very practical.


    All this Cuphead tactical talk reminded me so much of how I (or anyone for that matter) approach Touhou games, haha. Lots of repetition and memorization, each hit taken being a BIG deal, very boss focussed, very challenging, visually spectacular for reasons unrelated to hi-res graphics, great music, etc... I hope y'all manage to beat Cuphead. Few things in gaming top the excitment in the heat of the moment while overcoming legitimately difficult challenges after failing over and over.

    Hope they make a retro Gamecube, the original Gamecube discs would look like regular disks next to it, lol. But in all seriousness Nintendo make Super Mario Sunshine 2, Bring back F.L.O.W. and add Luigi with F.L.O.W.'s sister as a two player drop-in idea.

    I don't get all the hubbub about Cuphead. Why is everyone playing it so much and gushing over it?

    I definitely prefer resolution over frame rate. I notice when a game chugs, but as long as it has a steady enough engine, I don't have a problem switching between 30 and 60 fps games. The main reason for that is because the visual fidelity doesn't change when using a different frame rate. However (side note), I do have a preference of 24/30fps for television and movies, as long as they were filmed with it in the first place. The quality of the image changes when you bump up the speed like that so it looks odd. That aside, games generally look the same to me cause 60 still isn't fast enough for me to overlook the choppiness/stutter of the refresh rate. I haven't invested in a 120-144hz monitor yet, but I don't see a need since I won't ever utilize the full potential it has, plus they're kind of expensive and I'd rather have a couple more games than play the 1 of 5 games I own on PC that would push out enough frames to look smooth. To put it into perspective tho, I also grew up with games starting with the NES so with where gaming is at now, I can forgive a lot of the tricks they use to make a stable engine since that's the most important thing to me. I will do 900p30 for a game if it's fun, stable, slightly challenging, but also fairly rewarding. The tech specs for a game can take a backseat if it can hit those notes for me.

    So, in regards to the SNES classic:


    First, I want one. But, that isn't a helpful comment. So, second, I am very confused as to why there isn't a way to connect a third controller for Secret of Mana. Sure, it's being re-made, but what are the odds you have two friends who have Vitas? Third, I can confidently say that a regular Super Nintendo hooked up to an HD TV looks terrible. I tried that when HD TVs first started becoming mainstream, and it was basically just four large pixels.

    I get stressed by watching people (try to) play Cuphead. I'd have a stroke trying to play it. It looks beautiful, but I don't want to be hospitalized. I would have 1000+ deaths before leaving the first island... if I was even able to get off the first island. (That's a conservative estimate, too.) I don't like to hate myself.


    Ryan's "surprise" at the two bosses most difficult for Ashley doesn't help.


    My TV has desaturation that goes to monochrome... but it lags so I can't use it for gaming. (Older TV with a lot of post-processing and no "Game Mode" that bypasses it.)


    I would be willing to bet the Switch will eventually get Cuphead.


    My first console was Magnavox Odyssey 2 (where I also learned ASM because of a debug mode). Second console was Texas Instruments TI-99/4a (a console/PC hybrid - dad used it for payroll). Next one was ages later. XBox 360, then Wii, then One. So, all those Ataris, NESes, SNESes, N64s, DreamCast, etc, I missed them all. (I don't consider Pong from Sears to be a console, but it's the first home videogame system we had.) I don't think a mini Odyssey or mini TI-99/4a would be worth it.


    (As one who's responsible for maintaining legal software and content licensing at work, I cannot bring myself to do the ROMz emulators. I also doubt there would be any for the Odyssey or TI.)


    The Occulus rep at RTX14 told me to avoid VR because of motion-sickness. Supposedly, Elite: Dangerous has features to reduce the effect.


    Devs have to decide how much is it worth it to do something - like tell a certain number of people to go accept the new ToS or just let people figure it out.


    As for bosses who don't listen: It's part of the job, especially when bosses don't know the technology. Have a technophobe boss who pushes for technology that he doesn't understand. He almost purchased a number of card-readers for cards that cannot be read. I, the only IT guy here, found out about it just before the manager of project resources signed off on a quote and had to pull the brakes on that immediately. Not bitter or else I wouldn't still be working here.


    One thing that makes me nervous about PS is the PSN hackings. No point in a PS if you can't make yourself get PSN+. It's like XBox Live without Gold.


    The next Elder Scrolls is going to be a light-hearted musical set in Elsweyr and Blackmarsh - a risky new direction. ...as both an expansion in ESO and a standalone parallel game where you get bonuses in the single-player campaign by doing things in ESO. (Actually reading that, the latter part doesn't seem too far of a stretch which I find unfortunate.)


    I just remembered that I haven't played any F4 DLCs. *sigh* Need more time and a better memory... or longer attention span.


    Porting between consoles provides an interesting opportunity. Back in my day, code had to be efficient. (Counting clock cycles.) Nowadays, it's all "get better hardware". Instead of trying to prune features to make it work on consoles, get creative. Then, expand that onto PCs.


    Based on Alfredo's and Ryan's testimony, I'm glad that I gave Destiny 2 a miss.


    I'm with Ashley on the resolution vs. frame rate - depends on the game.

      I kinda have to agree with Ryan and Alfredo on how little there is left in D2, but I feel like completely passing it up is a missed opportunity. I spent the last month in it and I'm playing it on 2 platforms so I'm a tad burned out on it, but that's a solid month of one game. Sure it's not the same as some of the other games out there, but I have a bunch of friends that play it every day and I'm always willing to hang out with them. I'm about to get AC Origins and I expect to only spend a week or so with it. But I don't want to make it sound like either of them have very little content though. I tear through games extremely fast cause that's how I play them. If you stretched out how I play compared to the average gamer, it'd be probably 2-3 months in D2 and a month in AC. 


      tldr, Destiny 2 is probably worth it if you consider how some people will binge games and determine how you play vs how they play.
